Greetings from across the pond! You all seem like a friendly bunch on here, so I thought I might join you in your fight against our common enemy. I've made it to day 16 and feel great. The air has just tasted a little different the last few days. Maybe I'm just hallucinating or maybe it's because I can actually start to taste things again, who knows, but I like it. Since I've quit, I've had so much more time to play with my little 2 year old girl. It's amazing what we're willing to sacrifice for something that kills us. She used to tell me not to go outside when she'd see me making my way towards the door. I would say something to the tune of "Be back in a minute and we'll play". Which would inevitably lead to her crying or becoming sad. But not in 2 weeks it hasn't! No longer is she or my wife subjected to the stench that my habit caused. No longer do I need to go "warm up the car" when we are about to leave the house. No longer is my time, my finances and my thoughts a slave to something that wants me dead. I want to see my child graduate and get married. I want to walk her down the isle and be in good health for her adulthood. I'm sick of this selfish addiction and am proud to be free!
